Greater Lincolnshire LEP Director, Ruth Carver, explains why more women should apply for positions on LEP boards.
Not enough women are putting themselves forward for non-executive positions at local enterprise partnerships across the country. A recent job advertisement for new board members at the Greater Lincolnshire LEP attracted only one application from women.
We recognise that more must be done to promote the opportunities and benefits to business women of acting in a voluntary capacity as board members for LEPs. While the immediate benefit would be a skills gain for the LEP, there are clear benefits to the board members themselves too.
There are several compelling reasons to apply for board member positions:
Being a non-executive board member of a LEP is an interesting and rewarding experience. Not only do you make a real, valuable contribution to the economic success of your local area, but you also work with inspiring people on exciting, challenging projects. More women should consider applying for non-executive board member positions. The experience and insights brought to the board by having more women in business would be hugely valuable and would make a positive difference to LEPs.
